Belly is a cheap cut, and once salted, will keep in a zip-lock bag for two weeks in the fridge. The instant it discolours, acquires a slippery surface coating or smells other than sweet, throw it away. Petit salé is good with lentils, soft polenta or mashed potatoes. It is delicious cold with a chickpea salad or in sandwiches.
